The Dialectical Forge identifies dialectical disputation (jadal) as a major formative dynamic within the evolution of pre-modern Islamic criminal structures, selling dialectic from relative obscurity to a extra acceptable place on the leading edge of Islamic felony stories. the writer introduces and develops a dialectics-based analytical strategy for the research of pre-modern Islamic criminal argumentation, examines parallels and divergences among Aristotelian dialectic and early juridical jadal-theory, and proposes a multi-component paradigm—the Dialectical Forge Model—to account for the facility of jadal in shaping Islamic legislations and criminal concept.

Example text

Newspaper clipping) Again, because the reporter makes no claim that these statements imply anything, there is no argument. One must be careful, though, with reports about arguments: “The Air Force faces a serious shortage of experienced pilots in the years ahead, because repeated overseas tours and the allure of high paying jobs with commercial airlines are winning out over lucrative bonuses to stay in the service,” says a prominent Air Force official. (Newspaper clipping) Properly speaking, this passage is not an argument, because the author of the passage does not claim that anything is supported by evidence.

What happened to an earring, maybe two, in each lobe? Now any surface is game. Brow, lip, tongue, cheek, nose. I’ve adjusted to untied shoelaces and pants that make mooning irrelevant. But when it comes to piercings, I just can’t budge. (Debra Darvick, “Service with a Smile, and Plenty of Metal”) Because neither of these authors makes any claim that his or her belief or opinion is supported by evidence, or that it supports some conclusion, there is no argument.

By method of elimination, “It is vitally important that wilderness areas be preserved” is the conclusion. Some arguments contain no indicators. With these, the reader/listener must ask such questions as: What single statement is claimed (implicitly) to follow from the others? What is the arguer trying to prove? What is the main point in the passage? The answers to these questions should point to the conclusion. Example: The space program deserves increased expenditures in the years ahead. Not only does the national defense depend on it, but the program will more than pay for itself in terms of technological spinoffs.
